"It was bizarre because I became the story. He was so very focused on me that I became the story and, you know, you never want to be the story when you're a news person,” Kelly said today on "Good Morning America," referencing the frayed relationship she has with the GOP presidential candidate. “You want to be covering the story so it was like an Alice-through-the-looking-glass experience.”
Kelly also said she has no regrets about asking Trump about his treatment of women in the first Republican debate that started the feud with him.
"I stand by every question I asked him and he was not the only one who had tough questions,” she said. “He was the only one, however, who complained.”
There may be another chapter in the Trump-Kelly saga because Fox News announced it will host a Republican primary debate March 3 with Chris Wallace, Bret Baier and Kelly moderating. Kelly mentioned that the real estate mogul has not committed to participating in that debate, but said she hopes he does.
“The bigger question in my mind is whether Donald Trump will be at that one,” he said. “I think he will be. He hasn't committed but he will show up at that one, which is great because Brett, Chris and I will be moderating it-- Bret Baier, Chris Wallace and myself. And we will just move our Trump questions from the last debate over to this debate. And I’ll finally get a chance to ask him.”
Trump decided not to participate in the most recent Fox News debate, in which Kelly was one of the moderators, before the Iowa caucuses. Arguing that he wouldn't be treated fairly at the debate, Trump instead held a "special event to benefit veterans organizations" at the same time.
Trump's return to the debate stage will be Saturday night at ABC News' Republican debate in New Hampshire.
